Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It’s hard to believe isn’t it? With all that is happening in the world today, we may not be getting together with our extended families for the holidays. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find unique ways to celebrate! Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks. For the younger kids, it is a fun filled day with delicious food and family activities. If you are wondering what to buy the kids for thanksgiving this year, we have you covered! We have put together a fun (and affordable) holiday gift guide just in time.
PutterBall is a fantastic game for the entire family. You are guaranteed to have fun whether you are 5 years old or 65 years old! PutterBall is best played in teams, with two players on each team. The objective is to make 6 cups before the opposing team. The kids will love this game as they can play with their friends, siblings, or even bring the parents in for some extra competition. PutterBall is suitable for both indoor and outdoor gaming. Teams will take turns trying to make cups, with each player hitting one putt per turn. Once a team has successfully made all six cups, the opposing team is given a chance at redemption. This is where the fun really happens, and kids will love the idea of getting one final chance to make the winning putt! We love this game for the holidays because it is easy to involve the entire family. Bonus – dad can work on his golf game in the off-season. Sounds like a win-win to us!
- Lego Kits
Lego is a classic game to keep the kids busy during thanksgiving holidays. We have probably all played with Lego at one point, this game has been around for years! You can create a multitude of fun scenes and even set up a Lego making contest with a fun prize at the end. Kids will get their creative side flowing, while keeping occupied for hours. This gift is a great way to enjoy the holidays and it makes an exciting gift for children over 6 years old.
- Thanksgiving Themed Coloring books
Thanksgiving themed coloring books make a great gift for children during the holidays. Getting them in the holiday spirit will be easy when they learn all about American Thanksgiving traditions through educational, yet fun coloring activities. Set up a coloring station in any room and leave them to it. They will be so excited to show you their works of art!
- Crystal Growing Experiment Kit
You may be wondering, what is a crystal growing experiment kit? Well, these kits have been around for a while but are becoming more popular today so don’t be surprised to see them at your local store. With these kits, kids can learn to experiment with science tools and create their own home-grown crystals! They will have a great time choosing their color palette and creating something beautiful. Science can be fun after all!
- FujiFilm Instax Mini
Remember polaroid cameras? Well, they are making a big comeback! FujiFilm has come out with a mini-sized polaroid camera intended for kids. With instant photos, the kids can create works of art or just capture family photos throughout thanksgiving weekend. Their inner photographer will come out in no time, creating fun memories of thanksgiving and keeping them busy for hours. For added fun, create a fun scavenger hunt game for the kids, asking them to take photos along the way as ‘proof’ of what they found.
Thanksgiving might look a bit different this year, but there is no reason it can’t be fun and enjoyable for the whole family. While many of our traditions will likely be put on hold, it is so important we try to make the most of it and create new traditions that may end up sticking around for years to come. These fun gifts are a great way to brighten the holidays and bring some fun back into everyday life. The best part about thanksgiving is family, and with games like PutterBall you will have a great time together creating memories for years to come.
Whatever you do this holiday season, we hope you stay safe, and enjoy every moment with family and friends!
